A thorough account of the theory of electronic transport in semiconductor nanostructures.
Provides a thorough account of the theory of electronic transport in mesoscopic systems. Preliminary concepts are followed by a discussion of the "transmission formalism" widely used in describing mesoscopic transport; key topics in mesoscopic physics; and optical analogies to mesoscopic phenomena. The final section offers an intuitive description of the non- equilibrium Green's function formalism and its relation to the transmission formalism. Annotation c.
